VAMP (Vermont Archive Movie Project)

VTIFF and Vermont PBS proudly present the launch of a joint effort – the VAMP online database – a searchable website of Vermont films past and present. The program includes Vermont films remastered and digitized by VTIFF and by VT PBS as well as a short film about the ephemeral nature of film by Jesse Kreitzer.
Vermont Films are FREE with a recommended donation of $5.00. They cannot be booked in advance and seats will be available on a first come-first served basis.
Following this program, there will be a reception, with food by Skinny Pancake, a cake from VT PBS to celebrate their 50th birthday and cash bar by Zero Gravity.
